At our April 3rd gathering, Christopher Closson will discuss his first official documentary, "The Crystal Chalice Awards," which was completed in 2016, bringing awareness to the annual art and music award show hosted in Cumberland, MD.
 
Christopher “Selomon” Closson has been making videos his entire life. Though he was accepted to many different film schools, he ultimately decided to skip traditional education and learn through experience.
 
At our May 1st gathering, JW Myers of Route 40 Films will discuss film production, acting, and improvisation.
 
JW Myers grew up in Frostburg, graduated with a B.A. in Theater from Frostburg State University, and then spent the next two decades in New York and Los Angeles, writing, performing, and directing film and television. JW has produced and directed several feature films, including “The Pledge,” “A Christmas Tree Miracle,” “Special School,” and “Flamingo Dreams.” JW serves as Adjunct Faculty at Frostburg State University, teaching a class in Acting For the Camera. Locally, he also teaches Television Production for teens at MCCA (Mountain City Center for the Arts) in Frostburg, and “Improv with JW at Queen City Playhouse” in Cumberland.
